Skip to comments.Florida Senator Rick Scott Announces Challenge to GOP Senate Leader McConnell

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) announced at a lunch meeting with fellow Republican senators on Tuesday that he is challenging current Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for his leadership post in the new Congress. Scott is the head of the NRSC, the GOP’s Senate campaign arm. His controversial tenure resulted in Democrats narrowly retaining control of the Senate. Scott’s bid is seen more as a protest as McConnell appears to have sufficient support to remain Leader.
President Trump spoke about a Scott challenge to McConnell in a n interview last week with Glenn Beck, “I think Rick Scott would be much better than McConnell.”

Rick Scott is the MORON who proposed to sunset Social Security and Medicare before the election, giving the Dems endless campaign ads.
Rick Scott is as harmful as Lindsey Graham who proposed a nationwide abortion ban before the midterms.
Of course, 3-time loser Trump is stupid enough to back a Rick Scott
No, Rick Scott is a moron.
So what’s the truth here?
One problem is KY has a Dem governor. Mitch will resign the moment he loses his position, and then it becomes even easier for Biden to control the Senate.
Yeah ... I also think plain oatmeal would be better than rat poison.
He may be a moron...but 100% better then mcconnell
I’m aware that Trump did decide to endorse DeSantis and thus Trump believes that DeSantis needs to be Trump’s obedient servant forever. But did Senator Scott do anything to help DeSantis have an environmnt of being able to be a successful Governor in Florida?
Hmmm let’s see - he was the Governor in Florida 2011-2019 and then he did something that Masters and Laxalt failed to do this month in defeating an incumbent during a midterm where the Democrats had a big wave that put Nancy back in the Speaker’s chair. Bill Nelson was a very popular incumbent Senator in Florida who had beat back some pretty good Republican candidates in previous Florida elections.
I think the Democrats would love to be able to defeat Scott in his 2024 re-election race. But, with election integrity now being standard under DeSantis, it’ll be very difficult for them to cheat so their odds of success will be difficult.
Been in the Senate 4 years. Proposed taxing the poorest and cutting SS. Not the right guy even if he could win, which he won’t.
I take it you don’t support Trump?
Scott has less then Two months to convince a group of Senators to vote for him instead of Mitch. I don’t see it happening.
Trump is a 3-time loser who did not learn the lessons of 2020 and mail-in ballots.
He has no strategy to combat the ballot harvesting that is perfectly legal under state laws.
If he runs without a strategy, he will lose again.
I love Trump. But if he cannot adapt and overcome the changes to election laws, then we need new blood.
That's what I'd like to know too.
Rick Scott NEVER backed ending Social Security.
He backed a plan to LOOK AT ALL PROGRAMS EVERY FEW YEARS TO SEE IF THEY WERE WORKING... OR A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY.
Social Security is a ‘program’ so technically it would be looked at for a few seconds. But the goal of what Scott wanted to do is solid. It was designed to end millions of liberal ‘elite’ programs that do NOTHING and cost a lot of money.
